Hunter upset over GQ photos

(CNN) – Rielle Hunter is extremely upset with the three photographs of herself featured in the latest issue of GQ magazine.

The woman who was involved in a months-long affair with Democrat John Edwards told ABC's Barbara Walters Monday she found the images - two of which feature her without pants - "repulsive" and, Hunter also told Walters, she cried for two hours because she felt they were so terrible.

"When I asked, 'Well if that was the case, why did you pose the way you did?' She said that she trusted Mark Seliger, who she said is a brilliant photographer, and she quote 'went with the flow,'" Walters said on ABC's The View.

"She said that he took a lot of pictures, and thought there might be one like that, that showed her being sexy," Walter's continued. "When she was shown with her daughter, she was wearing her own t-shirt and sweatpants. The other photos of her with the big shirt are not her clothes, they were given to her by the photographer."

The images accompanied a more than 10,000-word interview with Hunter, who for the first time discusses how her now-infamous affair with Edwards developed.

    Did she think the photos were being taken simply to fill the time of the photographer? What did she think was going to be done with them? Maybe she is the smart one and thinks the public is stupid.

    Ok, she is on a bed with just a shirt on and now she is upset over the photos. Get upset that they wanted you on a bed with just a shirt on to begin with! And then, don't do it!

    She's "upset"? This woman is such a dim bulb. Take off your pants and let me take pictures of you. Uh...OK!!!!

    Even in the picture with Edwards' kid she's all sexed up. Next stop – Dancing With the Stars. Big L for "LOSER"!

    She should be upset about breaking up a marriage and committing adultery. This woman has some nerve!

    Is this woman for real!!!??? She totally posed for those pictures and on a bed! What did she think the photographer was going for? If you don't want "sexy" pictures taken then don't pose for them! It's that simple. She should have been sitting in a chair, fully clothed! Hellllooo! What an idiot!

    So she put on "wardrobe" clothes that didn't include pants and posed like a Victoria Secret wannabe, but is shocked and saddened because they actually went to print with pictures she willingly posed for. It must be so hard to be a misunderstood mistress!

    This lying adulterer was but a heartbeat away from being vice-president. Not as bad though, as the lying adulterer who WAS president.

    What's with these southern boys? Can't keep the flag at half-mast?

    Isn't there a video posted around here somewhere that shows her quite comfortably laughing and posing in just a shirt?

    What an airhead. She an Sarah Palin can start a road show!

    She obviously has a problem with saying, "No, I won't participate in that." She didn't say no to John Edwards (protected) and she didn't say no to the photographer. The photographer took pictures she didn't think were going to be used? And what did she think he was taking pictures for in the first place. It wasn't for Good Housekeeping; it was for GQ for Pete's sake! So now she wants sympathy??? She needs to keep her mouth shut if she wants anyone to think she's anything except an opportunist.

    This tramp can't make up her mind, she wants publicity and now says she was tricked, by who, yourself? Have you ever thought about telling the truth?

    Give me a break, the photo shoot was for GQ! If she didn't do her research (highly doubtful) as to what type of magazine it was, then she's delusional. She has no business complaining after she clearly TOOK THE PICTURES FOR PUBLICITY. There's no doubt that the photographer allowed her to see proofs before the issue went to print. And hello? Maybe the fact that you weren't wearing pants in the pictures should have been a dead giveaway as to how the spread was going to look! I can't even stand to read about idiots like this.

    what can one say? she is half naked in a room full of toys and posing provocatively while hugging her daughter. Yet, she is upset about the pictures. She has an affair with a married man but she is not a mistress or the other woman. Then she proceeds to criticize ELizabeth Edwards, a remarkable woman who didnt have an affair with a married man, who didnt pose half naked in her children's room...ah right, and who has terminal cancer? this woman is not only a bimbo but she is cruel, inmoral, and a liar. A perfect match for "Johnny"!

  22. If it walks like a duck.....

    If she thinks those pice are "repulsive" then I wonder what she thinks of her behavior with that married man. SKANK!!!

    Reille it's a little late to worry about your image when you admit to sleeping with Sen. Edwards within a few hours of meeting him, and if you didn't want photos of you without pants on to be published you should of kept yours on.
